She was just seven. May be, she walked home in a good mood from school to make her parents glad with two top marks in singing and drawing. She did not make it on that day. When she walked near children’s playground, a couple of dogs attacked her. They were just unleashed domestic dogs.
When I try to see myself in this situation, I presume that the main parts of the story were fear, pain, view of terribly bright red blood and a quick thought of ongoing death. What else I would think in such a situation when I was seven? Whom I would call? Even though I got a few answers, unanswered questions outnumber them.
The news about this terrible thing happened in the Ural district of Russia was discussed in social media. Someone in disrespecting manner blamed parents for not taking care of the girl; he was threatened by another Internet user with Allah’s revenge on such an attitude. Obviously, the first person asked a question: Where has Allah been at the time of the attack? Reading comments on the Internet is a disgraceful fun, which I happened to have due to curiosity. There was a branch of comments devoted to political clashes between Russia and Ukraine; and another argument on Allah who is quick to humiliate offenders of his prophet. In other words: Allah who represents “peaceful religion” punishes his offenders by humiliation. There was a guy who claimed to be Christian; he said that he eyewitnesses “miracles” that people who have never seen started seeing, and those who could not walk, started walking. How about resurrecting the girl?
I like reading comments, especially on my own blog 🙂 By the time of posing this text I have not seen any yet, but I hope I will. Likes (especially by bots, are not counted). But… How terrible comments might become if people start religious wars?! I quit at once if I see that such rubbish begins…
Just an example: The Living God, Jehovah, is often blamed for inconsistency. Fact number one: Christian God is God of love; fact number two: He allows children to be born with cancer and they die very soon.
Here is a good reading: Why does God allow children to suffer and die? Do not read comments though 😀
For the majority of people, these two facts are just enough to proclaim, that there is no God. Or there is, but He is punishing wrong people. To me, a follower of Jesus Christ, these two facts are enough to say that something wrong is wish us, people; something wrong with our understanding of God and our own nature.
